-to-air missiles or whatever weapons were used to shoot down helicopters. >> the president is talking about russia's actions in eastern ukraine. but it sounded a lot like senator john mccain after benghazi. >> that's a stunning statement the president said i don't believe the russians. it was not spontaneous. there were armed militias on the ground with military style weapons. two years ago he said the opposite of benghazi. he said it was a spontaneous protest. there were armed me lish thats on the ground, they knew that. anything that knows anything about the military it takes planning and it take a professional team to have that kind of accuracy. but today on the ukraine he said the opposite. >> there are more things in these emaleds. interesting. >> you and i worked on the story of september 27th of 2012, where we confirmed the u.s. intelligence officials knew within 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. these new emails, as part of the judicial watch release show, that this went to the most senior levels of the white house. it was sent out by then deputy national security adviser dennis mcd
by the u.s.? washington may times attempted to tell russia where and how military troops should write. the white house was insulted by our appeal to the government to withdraw from eastern ukraine. washington has always requested elected in ainely coverage. logic is very strange used against civilians. and by a government that has no legitimacy. the representative of that you did not go much further than the american colleagues. talking about the state's monopoly over the use of force. this statement can only be called provocation. it seems that the high representative not only did not was supportingt those that perpetrated the coup d'État. the u.s. and the eu, their great responsibility is strong in the past. the categorical refusal of washington is totally non-fortuitous. running counter to the geneva declaration of 17 april. dialogueontinuation of . what could be a more striking force? of the use of and the signers of the geneva declaration, to not commit a look atror and take a possible consequences of their actions. and stop the district of policy with respect to the ukraine. an
are not peaceful protesters. they are heavily armed militants who are receiving significant support from russia. the russian leadership must know that if it continues to destabilize eastern ukraine and disrupt this month's presidential election, we will move quickly on additional steps. >> that is president obama and german chancellor merkel trying to calm tensions in ukraine, which is now on full military alert. fearing an imminent invasion from russia. moscow has warned any use of ukraine's military against its own people would be a game changer with "catastrophic consequences." that is exactly what the interim ukrainian government did this morning. ukraine's new anti-terror teams used force to take back the eastern town of sloviansk from who they call professional mercenaries. this is the same city where several american journalist from cbs news and buzz feed were detained and thankfully we're released. ukrainian military units now have half that city under their control and the acting president says his goal now is to prevent the unrest from spreading. along the southern coast, nearly three
point for the next round of sanctions against russia for this crisis ongoing in ukraine. until now, president obama has set the bar at a russian invasion for ukraine here. but after meeting today with german chancellor angela merkel, he moved it up a tad because the president here is hanging on to a possibility of a diplomatic resolution. and angela merkel agreed with that. although he punctuated that with a very big "but" today. president obama speaking at a news conference with the german chancellor a little more than an hour ago. >> but as angela merkel said, if, in fact, we see the disruptions and destabilization continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th, we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanctions. and the consultations have been taking place over the course of the last several weeks about what exactly those would look like and would apply to a range of sectors. the goal is not to punish russia, the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better course, and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i
on a number of issues. in particular on sanctions against russia over the intervention in ukraine. the ap saying that the president says violence escalating in eastern ukraine is making it obvious to the world that pro-russian militants are not peaceful protesters. he voiced his support for the ukrainian government on the day of its first major offensive aimed at driving out the insurgents occupying government buildings across the east of ukraine. we will hear from the german chancellor in just a bit. she will be introduced i thomas dunne eu, the president and ceo of the chamber of commerce. we bring you a conversation on sanctions and their effectiveness on foreign policy. the president is meeting with chancellor angela merkel. >> german companies always opposed sanctions against iran and it is no surprise that they are opposing sanctions against russia. germany ruthlessly pursued its mercantile interest and the lobbyist wrong. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including the former german chancellor. he is making money helping national gas -- natural g
significant support from russia. >> we'll discuss whether the two leaders with forge a united front in the face of russian aggression and auto renewed violence in ukraine. later, we'll dive into today's headline grabbing jobs report and why good news sounds so much like bad news for the gop. and melissa harris perry, msnbc's own, will be right here with us to discuss the plight of some 200 kidnapped school girls in nigeria. there were protests in new york today near the u.n., and we'll have more on that and what, if anything, the u.s. is doing to help. but we start with that joint news conference in front of the white house rose garden where president obama began with the jobs numbers and a few words on a devastating landslide and in afghanistan. both he and german chancellor angela merkel have tough questions on whether they can reach an agreement on stronger sakes against russia and whether they can bridge the divide between the u.s. and germany on nsa surveillance. president obama also faced a question from the international press about tuesday's botched oklahoma execution. on uk
are following for you. a meeting of the minds with german and the white house. and russia calling for an emergency meeting of the un security council. and a massive mud slide in afghanistan, the death toll could be in the thousands. ♪ >>> they stand united. that was the word from washington today as the president and germany's chancellor briefed reporters on the white house lawn. it was the first visit by angela merkel to the white house in three years, the two leaders discussing a wide range of issues talking about the crisis in ukraine and the nsa spy scandal that reported that perhaps her phone might have been tapped by the nsa. libby casey joins us by phone. and they seemed to be speaking from the same script. >> that's right, del. and one of the goals of this would be to portray a united front. the question is where do these countries go from here in terms of sanctions. even the new round of sanctions took a while to hammer out. and you could tell there are some differences when it comes to germany's goals and the u.s. goals in terms of how deep sanctions could or should go
of sanctions by the u.s. and european union stopped short of hitting russia's oil and gas industry. trade between the two countries amounted to $100 billion last year. >> we work very closely with russia. we are to some extent even dependant on russia gas, so for that reason we are hesitant to put more pressure on russia. >> reporter: foreign policy analyst mark fisher says the white house sees merkel as a possible bridge. >> she is the link of communication with putin right now. in that respect, being here in washington the day after she just talked to putin, it's very important for symbolic and political reasons. we're not so hot blooded so chancellor merkel is someone on the german scene and europe yoon political scene who likes to lead by consensus. >> reporter: that cool demeanor may keep the german chancellor from hitting president obama with a scathing public critique of the nsa monitoring her private calls. >> she will say very clearly that she is disappointed, but she will do that behind closed doors. she will talk very openly, i think to president obama about this issue, but she
such a strong partner on this issue. you have spoken out forcefully and against russia's illegal actions in ukraine and you have been a leader in the european union as well as an indispensable partner in the g7. your presence here today is a reminder that our nation stand united. we are united in our coordinateon on sanctions. we are united on our unwavering article five commitment to the security of our nato allies including german aircraft joining nato patrols over the baltics. we are united in our support for ukraine including the very program approved this week to help them stabilize and reform its economy. as ukrainian forces move to restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world that these russian groups are not peaceful protesters. they are heavily armed militants who are receiving significant support from russia. the ukrainian government has the right and responsibility to uphold law and order within its territory and russia needs to use its influence over these paramilitary groups of they disarm and stop evoking violence. let me say that we are also united in our o
stiffer sanctions, sanctions on the various sectors of russia's economy, the mining sector and believes that would have a bigger bite than sanctions implemented so far which largely target individuals. russia has been hesitant to move forward with stiffer sanctions because they are far more dependent on russia for things like oil than the united states is. so that is where the divide comes in. president obama has said he doesn't want to move forward without his european allies because he wants to present a united front to russia. the u.s. calculation being that that is far stronger than if the u.s. were to move forward unilaterally with those sectoral sanctions but germany is the linchpin here. so president obama will be trying to do some arm twisting. as you say, another issue that might come up the nsa, the two leaders could discuss the fact that german chancellor merkel was quite upset by the revelations that her cell phone had been happened. but the issue of ukraine will overshadow all of the other issues. >> and jean cummings, you've covered economics in the business world for so m
united. we are united to impose costs on russia for its actions including through coordinated sanctions. we are united on our unwavering article five commitment the security of our nato allies including german aircraft joining nato option over the pulpit. we are united in our support for ukraine including a very important imf program approved this week to help stabilize and reform the economy. and as ukrainian forces moved to restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world that these russian backed groups are not peaceful protesters. the heavily armed militants who are receiving significant support from russia. the ukrainian government has the right and responsibility to uphold law and order within its territory, russia needs to use its influence over these groups so they disarm and stop provoking violence. let me say that were also united in the outreach over the treatment of the observers to have been detained in eastern ukraine. pro-russian militants are still holding seven observers including four germans and ukrainian escorts. they have been paraded in front of the med
in the next few minutes. one being the crisis in ukraine. much of it's a exports come from russia. and the eavesdropping on angela merkel's phone. libby casey joins us by phone right now. and libby, you have been tracking the developments that have been taking place. this is not going to be as smooth sailing as many hoped. >> reporter: good morning, del, as i talked to the german reporters, and we're talking about political scientists and scroll lars as well. they say that angela merkel is a very polite leader. don't expect her to throw our fireworks live. but they said she will be speaking intense words behind closed doors to president obama over concerns not just about what happened prior, but also the obama administration's reluctance, unwillingness to turn over her nsa files to the german government. it does not look like we'll be seeing any development in an intelligence sharing or no spy arrangement that is something some hoped could happen but it does not look possible. the u.s. does not see a lot of value in the intelligence that germany could offer. so we may see some war
to impose actions on russia. we are united in our unwavering article five commitment. including german aircraft joining nato patrols over the baltics. we are united in our support for ukraine. the very important imf program approved this week. they disarm and stop provoking violence. pro- russian militants are still holding observers, including four germans, as well as ukrainian exports. they have been paraded in front of the media and forced to make statements at the barrel of a gun. it is disgraceful and un- excusable. finally, as both angela and i have repeatedly said, we want to see a diplomatic resolution andrew -- in ukraine. diplomatic and economic. it is estimated that $100 billion will exit russia this year. in short, russians actions are making an already weak economy even weaker. we have been consulting closely with our european and g-7 partners. the russian leadership must know that if it continues to destabilize eastern ukraine and disrupt this month residential collection, we will move quickly on additional steps including further sanctions that will impose greater costs.
for some time now and one of the most crucial items on the agenda, the crisis in the ukraine. >> for russia, they're saying all hope is lost for a diplomatic deal and calling for a meeting of the u.n. security counsel. that is scheduled for noon today. launched a counterassault to dislodge pro russian separatists. now, ukraine says it's holding four suspects. >> and there are hundreds of u.s. troops now deployed to certain countries in that region on stand by in poland. also, the baltics, so the u.s. is a key interest here and watchful eye on what's going on. let's duoto washington where wolf blitzer and the political team are waiting for this news conference. wolf? >> this is cnn breaking news. >> thanks very much. we are following very important news. we're standing by for a major news conference. we're looking at live pictures from the rose garden just outside the oval office. the president of the united states has been meeting inside with angela merkel. they're about to speak. the president will make an opening statement, followed by angela merkel, then they will open it up to questions
from chuck hagel talking about the nato alliance as tension heightens between russia and ukraine. russia's military move quote shatter the myth that the end of the cold war meant an end to insecurity at least in europe. speaking in washington he says the european nato members need bolster their expense effort because they will test the 28-nation lead alliance. we expect remarks to get underway in just a moment here at the wilson center.
